My daughter, my heart

Trifecta says: Check out the third definition of trail (below), and respond, using the word exactly as it appears, in no less than 33 and no more than 333 words.

My daughter, my heart:

I watch my daughter play alone in the yard. She is strong and independent. She discovers the world in solitude.

I watch my daughter play alone, working out the ways of the world, and I want to join her. I love her, and she may not know it. I love her, and she may not care.

I leap at her joyful play and twist at the sight of her friendless.

Little wisps of fear and love trail from my heart as I go out to meet her.

  1. How very opposite my story today.

    Beautiful representation of the wonder of our children, for sure. I love the warmth.
